Christine who runs the workshops gives people the opportunity to learn new skills, whether it’s peg looming, friendship bracelet making or weaving with nature. The experiences aim to create new skills, build on old and bring with them a sense of well-being and mindfulness too during the process. Connect with nature at Kiri Cottage Crafts.

Lucy went along to the Weaving with Nature course this past April and this is what she had to say about her experience…
 “I really enjoyed the Weaving with Nature experience at Kiri Cottage. I had never done anything like it, so it was exciting to try something different. Christine was extremely welcoming and provided delicious homemade scones and cake, as well as tea and coffee. We started off with weaving outside, using all natural materials, this was very interesting and fun. I really liked the fact it was outside as it was a beautiful day which made the whole experience more relaxing. We then went on to complete a mandala, which is similar to a dreamcatcher using all natural materials, such as wool and sticks, I really enjoyed using my creativity for this. Christine was an excellent host and had so much knowledge and advice, this is definitely something that I would do again.”  Lucy, Weaving with Nature at Kiri Cottage Crafts
